into a loophole in that they ruled the fcc ruled that the money that comes from viacom, the company that owns comedy central, won't count as donations when colbert starts working on his super pac. the fear that some people say is that this is allowing media organizations to have an unprecedented way of funneling resources then into campaigns and into the super pacs. >> okay. that happened on thursday. and just two days before, he was tightlipped when he met with me in his studio, and we taped an upcoming appearance by me on his show. take a look at some of the pictures that we were shooting. anyway, there's me in front of the colbert set. i can't give it away because i've been sworn to secrecy until it happens, but it's a skit that involves obviously cnn. and there's stephen colbert, also my book that you see when the banner's down. i'll be on there. but there's no air date for it. he didn't tell me anything about this. he wouldn't talk. he wouldn't talk. he's a very funny guy. i'll be on the upcoming stephen colbert, "the colbert report," short shortly. there's his producer in the middle. ma
